An Award For Me--Thanks So Much!

Thanks so much to SewSofie for this award.

I'm so glad she gave me a how-to list . . . here's how it works:

Award Rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (in no particular order…)
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

The thank you part is easy. Thanks Sophie for the encouragement and for all your comments.

As for seven things about myself . . . that's maybe not so easy.

  1. I'm pretty self-conscious about sharing about myself--so that's the first thing.
  2. I post here just about every day--it's a way of keeping myself on track and at least thinking about what I'm making, even on the days that I don't feel up to much.
  3. I just about failed Home Economics at school--the comment on the report card said, "assignments unsatisfactory"! I was already sewing my own clothes at that stage, but couldn't fit in with the school's way of getting things done.
  4. I'm much better at starting things than I am at finishing them. My head buzzes with ideas and possibilities, but all the follow-through to get the job done is less exciting.
  5. I'm good at Maths, but terrified of book-keeping.
  6. My solution to many dilemmas is to brew another pot of coffee--usually decaffeinated or I'd be bouncing off the walls.
  7. This is the first time I've received a blog award.

Now, to pass the award along:

  1. My friend D at Dee-cluttering my life: for inspiring me in so many ways and sharing big and small things.
  2. Teresa at Teresa's Textile Inspiration: for textile inspiration! She was my first spinning teacher.
  3. Charly at Ixcel Angora and Funky Fibre Art: for honesty and humour in equal proportions.
  4. Artrepeneur, the Collision of Art and Business: for asking, and attempting to answer, the hard questions about creating and cash.
  5. Ang of Ang's Antics: the little stories about your children make me smile and I will always admire your loyalty as a friend
  6. Pam at Beads 'n Threads: for achieving the kinds of things I dream about with metal clays--and more. I'm trying to work out how to get myself from Melbourne to Perth for some workshops.
  7. Knitspingirl: for calling me over to the world of socks.

Now to contact my award-winning bloggers to let them know and ask them to pass it on.
